Sip Some Cava, Wish List Some Diamonds: How We Do SBS at Alx&Co.

It’s…the day after Thanksgiving! Otherwise known to our peers in the industry as Black Friday, we at Alexandria & Company decided a couple of years ago to provide our staff with a much-earned extended Thanksgiving holiday today instead of opening at 4am for a shopping event. Because I wanted to encourage you lovely readers to do the same, I curated some of my favorite featured items from our showroom here so that you can sit back with a giant mug of hot chocolate (and leftover pumpkin pie) and browse from the convenience of your own cozy couch. Scroll through to see some of the gorgeous items we have in for the holidays, and while you’re at it — make your wish list for Small Business Saturday! Details below…

Clockwise from left: 14k diamond bar necklace, $1,395 | vintage platinum and diamond bow lavalier, $3,450
14k beveled mini hoops, $265 | 14k moonstone and topaz drops, $425 | vintage 14k origami posts, $770

This year, we’re making your wish listing easier. Send us your favorites through our special online contact form and we’ll make sure your shopping elves know what you’ve been eyeing! Simply reference the name of the item and where you saw it and we’ll confirm your list when we receive it. If you want us to forward your list to someone special, just include their email address in your message and we’ll send it along, discreetly.

To celebrate Small Business Saturday, this year we’ll be serving pink cava (from Brüt Champagne Bar, of course) all day in our showroom and offering 10 percent off our entire collection (except our vintage engagement rings). Many of our featured jewelry is available in your choice of 14k white, yellow, or rose gold, or we’re happy to special order your favorite item in platinum. And, to really sweeten the deal, we’ll be including complimentary truffles from Blüprint Chocolatiers with any purchase made on Saturday. We’re opening at 10am on Saturday to get things started early, so please come celebrate the season with us! We would love to see you.

Creative Director & Co-Owner | Alexandria & Company
I came to join Alexandria & Company by way of love: my husband Tim has owned the stop for nearly ten years, and I started by helping him on Saturdays so that we could spend more time together. Eventually, I quit my other life in the legal field to become Alx&Co’s Creative Director and co-owner with Tim. Now, we run our small business together in Old Town and I haven’t looked back.

Alexandria & Company is an Old Town-based workshop and design studio specializing in creating and restoring fine jewelry and silver hollowware. They are the in-the-know jewelers of Alexandria and have been serving clients out of their small workshop for decades. Tucked in their historic building on South Royal Street, the team at Alx&Co. brings a personalized, modern approach to their craft – this is not your average stodgy jeweler or antique shop. Visit them during their walk-in hours or online to view their collection of handmade fine jewelry or to drop off a repair project; or, if you’re feeling creative, make an appointment to talk about that custom design project you’ve been imagining.  |
